The impact of cash in a crisis: evidence from Dandora, Kenya during and after Covid-19

This study will deliver cash grants to microenterprise owners run by women in Dandora, Kenya during the Covid-19 outbreak. We will use a randomized controlled trial to study the impact of cash on economic outcomes both during and after the crisis. Along the way we will collect information about expectations, beliefs, and impact of government policy responses on business outcomes.
